NewMind Sandpit #2

22ND-23RD SEPTEMBER 2016

MANCHESTER CONFERENCE CENTRE 

The EPSRC funded NewMind Network for the development of technologies to support & transform the management and treatment of mental health held its 2nd Sandpit event in September 2016. The event brought together clinicians, EPS researchers, service users, and industry partners to develop ideas and proposals to submit for funding to the NewMind Plus Stage 1 Feasibility Fund. 

NewMind plans to award grants for projects that investigate underlying Engineering & Physical Science challenges for technology in the service of Mental Health.

Funding available

  • up to 12 exploratory / feasibility projects (up to £15k),
  • larger grant support (up to £45k) for up to four of these initial projects.

A prerequisite of funding is that applicants must attend at least one Sandpit event prior to submitting their proposal, and that it shows strong alignment with the priorities and outcomes contained in the network's Research Roadmap.

Details of how to apply for funding were made available at the event, together with an outline of the support available to help develop proposals.

The agenda for this sandpit is available here
